Please advise me about a tripod that will work better.... I have a Bogen 3205 tripod with an adjustable Bogen ball head, all supporting a 4x5 Tachi. I replaced the ball head with a Bogen 3047 head, and now the tripod is actually slightly top-heavy and (perhaps) under-sized. While I still have my nylon net bag to fill with rocks for stability on location, this works best for rocky places, not plentiful in the Heartland.
I'm thinking I should be on the lookout for another, better tripod for sale. But, what would be better? And--is it better to have a light-weight set-up (and maybe bring rocks), or does your experience suggest alternatives I should consider?
Merci mille fois--
